MACRO:In Macro mode, the Canon G1 X's fast lens helps to produce sharp shots with a beautifully shallow depth-of-field.
ACCURATE: JPEGs taken straight out of the camera demonstrate the Canon PowerShot G1 X's ability to capture faithful colours and a superb level of sharp detail.
RAW: Raw files from the Canon G1 X provide plenty of scope for further manipulation
BLACK AND WHITE: Punchy black and white conversions can be made easily.
DEPTH OF FIELD: With the aperture set to f/2.8, it's possible to achieve the sort of shallow depth-of-field effects that aren't normally possible with a typical compact camera.
DETAIL: Bags of fine detail and pleasing colours are common characteristics in the Canon G1 X's images - whichever exposure mode you choose to work with.
ZOOM IN: Zooming in to 100% reveals a clean, sharp performance, with the camera's fast lens and Intelligent IS system enabling you to keep the ISO low when shooting in gloomy conditions.
